We had a great time at The Big Easy, mainly thanks to Lucas who looked after us. Nothing was too much trouble, the service was fantastic and the food was amazing! We will definitely be back.

I haven’t been here for awhile and always enjoyed my dining experience. Sorry but this time it was awful. The menu has changed and it was horrid. Won’t be going back unless I hear there are huge improvements.
I must say the waiter was very good but other than that it was thumbs down. We didn’t even have mains. The starter was enough of a let down.

In general, acceptable food quality, but it is not awesome. For me, it was too spicy and everything was spicy (ribs, pork, beans, chicken), so, it was a bit disgusting. Pork and ribs were a bit overcooked. Good restaurant, but not outstanding. Music was good but too noisy, so it was difficult to chat with my partner.

My server was great, think is name is Jensen, food was great but there wasn't any A.C. down stair and we were burning up, could be a little more spacious aswell. Other than those it was aswell spent evening with good food and cocktails.

So lets just say big easy kings road was an appauling experience, we were over charged by £58.00, made to rush out of restaurant and 3 weeks later nobody will even look into my complaint so for that reason will not reccommend!

We were greeted with a friendly smile at the door and shown promptly to our table. The waiter immediately introduced himself as the person who would be serving us for the evening. The food and atmosphere was amazing. We both had a wonderful time at Big Easy and would be definitely going back there again.

We went in for the £10 lunch menu but added starter for £3. Starters were a great size and we were pretty full by the time we had our main. We all ordered the lobster roll and were disappointed with the one tiny piece of lobster as the rest of the roll was stuffed with salad. To be fair we did understand that we were paying for a £10 lunch menu so I guess we couldn't expect much more. Would recommend going for something else if you are going to go for the lunch menu as everything else would have been very good value.

We only had an hour to eat, which we let the Server know. He was really attentive and the food came in 15-20 minutes. We asked to pay right away which they obliged. Everything that went by looked and smelled amazing. We got the Lobster Roll, Mac N Cheese, and the Smoked Sausage all of it was delicious.

My biggest gripe was the noise level/number of children on the night we went. There were about 4 tables around us with kids that were running around, crying, and playing with things like doors or balloons. My partner kept getting bumped into which was frustrating. I don't know if this is as common as it was our first time there. We'd def go back again but maybe later in the evening to avoid this issue.

I booked in Sunday dinner for two and had noted in the booking that we were celebrating my partners birthday. We arrived expecting a smile and a "how are you?" at the very least but nothing. The female host was completely disinterested in us. I even mentioned that it was my partners birthday and she just said "oh right. Where do you want to sit, here or here".
The voodoo chicken wings with blue cheese sauce were completely delightful but my half lobster consisted of about two mouthfuls and the waitress had no idea what Thermidor sauce was (we used to get this on every visit). The beans included in my partners dish tasted like ketchup - far too much sugar.
The happy birthday from the band and waitress was a lovely touch, thank you.
Overall we were disappointed, particularly given the amount that I spent. It didn't feel like a special occasion and the food quality didn't match the prices. This was once in my top three favourite restaurants in London and I would bring various friends but now I don't think I would return.

Very nice live music on the background while having dinner. The food however was OK, the meat could have been juicier and/or bigger in portion sizes. The value of the food & drinks are a bit overpriced too. But all in all very good food, drinks and service!

A lovely environment probably best for friends outings and dates as is not really the best for kids.

Loud ambiance at first that becomes a warm, comfortable setting once you are seated and served.

Although the drinks are relatively expensive, the food is worth its value and more, with amazing barbecue and seafood options available to choose from it's a taste sensationalist dream!
Would definitely recommend.

It was a last minute get together with some friends. The starters were a little over cooked but loved the lobster main a lot!
The lower restaurant is always too hot though!

Went here to celebrate my birthday. There was a love band on the music was so loud we couldn’t hear each other talk so asked to move which was accommodated. As always the food was great well some of it. .. however service this time was terrible. It wasn’t as busy as previous visits but the service was very slow and our waiter just didn’t seem to care and just kept getting frustrated with us. One of my friends ordered a steak that was so overdone and dry we sent it back which didn’t go down well with our waiter. He thenhad the nerve to question why we wouldn’t pay the 12.5% service charge.

Hasn’t put me off going here but I won’t rush back.

I am a big fan of this branch but this visit wasn't the best. From arriving, which we did a little early, it felt as though we were rushed through our meal, starting with asking for our order within 2 minutes of being seated. Calamari was great but lobster didn't live up to your usual amazing standards. Atmosphere was of course great.
Please sort it out, I want to love you again. 😊

Friendly staff, good food and drink. Fortunately I have been here before and know that there is music in the evening. I booked an upstairs table as one of my party has hearing problems. So while it was loud when the music started it wasn’t unbearable as it would have been downstairs.

Only go there for the lobster. Usually doesn't disappoint. Some difficulty parking and tortuous journey through Kensington due to diversions. Still worth it though.

We were 15 minutes late and the security refused to let us in, knowing we had 45 minutes way to the restaurant. I also found that they were very badly polite in their way of talking to us. It’s just scandalous!

We've got our booked table and the drinks without any delay which was a first and the food within reasonable time but then our waitress has disappeared and we had to ask several times for topping up our drinks. Eventually we got fed up, asked for the bill and left.
The place has very nice food but the service could be improved.

The drinks are overpriced for what they are and I wouldn’t recommend getting the sharing platter as it’s expensive for what you get.

The other dishes on the menu looked tasty and the food was very good!
